Tekkotsu install instructions
From Tekkotsu Wiki
This page will show you how to install Tekkotsu on an Ubuntu workstation or netbook. You should have already installed all the required packages and dot files as described on the Ubuntu install instructions page. If you haven't done that, do it now, then come back to this page.
1. Check out the latest release of Tekkotsu:
sudo -s cd /usr/local cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs co -P Tekkotsu
2. If you're using Ubuntu 14.04 and a Calliope2SP robot, you need to accommodate a change in the PS3 Eye device driver:
cd /usr/local/Tekkotsu/defaults \cp hal-Calliope2SP.plist.ubuntu14 hal-Calliope2SP.plist
3. If you're using something other than a Create (or basic Calliope) robot, use your favorite editor to edit /usr/local/Tekkotsu/project/Environment.conf to select a default value for TEKKOTSU_TARGET__MODEL. The default default is TGT_CREATE; other popular options are TGT_CALLIOPE2SP, TGT_CALLIOPE5KP, and TGT_ERS7. If you skip this step, or will be using multiple robot types, you can override the target model in the make command by typing, e.g.,
make -j4 tekkotsu-CALLIOPE2SP.
4. Once you've edited and saved the Environment.conf file, you can compile Tekkotsu:
cd /usr/local/Tekkotsu/project make -j4 # use 'make -j8' if running on a fast workstation or just 'make' on an older netbook
5. Copy the project directory to the user's home directory.
su user cp -rp /usr/local/Tekkotsu/project ~
- To use the Storyboard tool, see the Storyboard install instructions.
- To use the Mirage simulation environment, see the Mirage install instructions.
- If you're using a robot with Dynamixel servos, such as the Chiara, Calliope2SP, or Calliope5KP, you will want to compile the dynamixel_util tool. Do:
cd /usr/local/Tekkotsu/tools/dynamixel_util make # use 'make -j4' if running on a fast workstation
